looking for rg1570 opinions...

Hey everyone, i'm looking at buying a rg1570 and just want to know from anyone that has one how they like it. Also i want to know about the stock pickups, if they should be replaced or not. I play mostly heavy stuff. I did a search but didn't seem to get the answers i was looking for. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Im a metal guy and I like the V's, they have really good cleans too...

THey're good pickups, I'd prefer they had more output though, but they suffice pretty well for me. I wouldn't say they're bad at all.

I have a 570 with stock pickups and I actually like the stock pickup better than the stock TOne Zone that came in my 3120. TZ was way too muddy in that guitar. Changed them out to EMGs. Prolly going to put EMG's or Steve's special/Air Norton in the 570.

I bought an RG1570 a few months ago, I want to replace the bridge pickup because it's a bit lame. The neck pickup is okish but not as nice as my hotrails in my other guitar. The middle pickups good, the nicest combination when you have a clean sound is select the pickup comination for the neck and middle pickup. It's really nice sounding. I play a lot of metal and it's sounds great for those clean metal sections (like beginning to Welcome Home (Sanitarium)).
The trem is great. It kept going out of tune at first but I gave it a good hard 30mins or constant drive bombs and it was fine.
I would say this is great guitar with out any mods needed, but if you got the cash then go for it.
